Welcoming guest house
Such a wonderful host. She made us feel very welcome. Gave us lots of tips on things to do in Edinburgh in the short time we had. The room was a bit small, but none the less very comfortable with all the essentials. Extremely clean guest house. The continental breakfast was amazing. So much choice.

Loved it
Vivienne was wonderful host. The house was comfortable, and spotless. The breakfasts were wonderful. We met other lovely travellers there. Vivienne would help us book taxis etc. I really recommend if you are coming to Edinburgh, make this your home away from home.
